Product Details

Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens In Black, Model 2161

This high-powered, 4.3x Zoom-Nikkor lens, featuring Nikon's Enhanced Vibration Reduction (VRII) technology is ideal for sports, wildlife, travel and portrait photography, among other telephoto applications.

Features:

  • High-power 4.3x Telephoto Zoom-Nikkor lens (Approximates the picture angle performance of a 105-450mm lens on 35mm SLR).
  • Vibration Reduction (VRII) minimizes the effects of camera shake allowing photographers to shoot handheld at as many as 4 shutter speeds slower* than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images. * When used on Nikon DX format DSLR
  • Two Nikon Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements deliver superior optical performance for both digital and 35mm photography. ED glass minimizes chromatic aberrations, contributing to superb contrast and resolution performance.
  • Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet auto focusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working distance through the focus range.
  • Focus as close as 4.9 ft throughout entire zoom range.
  • Non-Rotating front element provides for convenient use of circular polarizing filters and the Nikon Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System.
  • A Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast and quiet autofocusing, along with quick switching between autofocus and manual operation (M/A and M).
  • A nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening, out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
  • 67mm filter attachment size.

          Comments about Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens:

          I use this lens for landscape and wildlife photography and I could not be more pleased with the performance. I use this lens with a Nikon D90 and the combination creates the most amazing photos. This is a lens that even the novice can use to produce breathtaking photographs. I haven't found anything that I would consider a negative although if you've never used a large lens before remember they are a little bulkier so a camera bag is a must. This is a quality lens at a reasonable price. If you buy this lens you will not be disappointed.
